hearing for chuck hagel was an omni directional embarrassing debacle for everyone involved. first there was the senate republican republicans. republican senator after republican senator threw questions at hagel that even by the debate standards of a nominating hearing were the cheapest kind of demagoguery and bullying. >> why do you think that the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be the secretary of defense? >> to go on al jazeera, a foreign network broadcasting propaganda to nations that are hostile to us and to explicitly agree with the characterization of the united states as the world's bully, i would suggest is not the conduct one would expect of a secretary of defense. >> you continue to fold, i believe, extreme views far to the left of even this administration. >> if you were a visitor from another country and you just listen to hagel's republican interlocaters, you would have had to ask where did this moral monster come from? and the answer is, of course, is mostly in the republican senate caucus. watching lindsay graham make the pained gas

a letter to defense secretary nominee chuck hagel asking him to clarify something he may or may not have said back in 2007. well, graham explains the letter's content on fox news sunday. >> there was a blog posting about a speech i think in 2007 or '08 that chuck hagel made at rutgers university and put on his blog the next day six points of the speech. question-and-answer session, and point six was allegedly senator hagel said the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which i think would be breathtaking if he said that. >> okay. so let's see if we're all on the same page here and have this correct. a right-wing website publishes a resumer from a blog based on something hagel may or may not have said in a speech over, count them, five years ago. and now sitting united states senators are demanding hagel explain himself. hagel provided ayotte and graham with a copy of the speech and notes he does not recall making any such statement. now, folks, this is a pattern for the new gop that maybe mr. viguerie is looking for. senator rand paul pushing a th
.i.a. and chuck hagel as secretary of defense how does graham justify all that? this week's republican exercise on false equivalence. >> i'm going to ask my colleagues just like they did with john bolton joe biden said no confirmation without information. no confirmation back in information. >> john: that's right. back in 2005 then-senator joe biden tried to hold up john bolton's nomination to get information related to john bolton. graham is holding up hagel and brennan to asking is neither hagel nor brennan did. here to help sort this out is tonight's panel. eric boehlert senior fellow with media matters for america. and l. joy williams morning host for "this week in blackness." and dean obeidallah politico median and creator of the dean's report.com. i'm thrilled that you're here to join me. eric why is lindsey graham doing all this? is he just auditioning to a party to a base that di pieces him? >> it's clear that it's some sort of audition. he's doing it because he doesn't want to be primaried in south carolina republican. you know, it's not just graham. susan rice. there were senators who
" with some great stuff lately. republicans ugly and shameful. chuck hagel filibuster. republicans have doubled down with their shameful filibuster of secretary of defense chuck hagel. add to this fresh insult of rand paul to put a hold on john brennan. looks like republicans are backing a cynical strategy that could compromise national security while proliferating partisanship. let's put it this perspective. republicans decided to filibuster a republican secretary of defense nominee. someone mitch mcconnell once called one of the most respected foreign policy. someone john mccain said would be an excellent secretary of state in his administration. it's fictional one. avalon writes this bitter confirmation fight is sadly ironic because picking a member of the opposite party usually an olive branch. remember how that would be seen as outreach? no longer. the abuse of a filibuster to delay or block the confirmation of the secretary of defense raises questions about filibuster reform because if a senator had to hold the floor and risk his bladder like jimmy stewart in "mr. smith goes to wa
-- sides and they are wrong. guest: that is one of the main selling points about chuck hagel. he is a pragmatist. one of the reasons the president nominated him was that i think he is reading the tenor of the electorate to say this is the kind of person that we want an office, that there is -- and a large proportion of the electorate it is ideal -- ideologically driven and we want more leaders to look at things objectively and with an open mind. i think that was one of the primary reasons why they are very enthusiastic about senator hagel's nomination. i think your point is well taken. host: editors of the new york times asked, it is clear hagel is in the mainstream. the usa today ads of this -- host: richmond virginia on the independent line. caller: i am wondering which american people they are talking about. my sentiments are that the colors before me -- their comments before me, the american people are wondering about what these politicians are basing their assumptions on as far as hagel is concerned. he used to be a parity decent sounding person -- decent sounding person. he
to the point. we'll see. let's talk about chuck hagel. bill kristol wrote an interesting piece on the importance of reconsidering these nominations. he used harriet miers as an example. any chance of that. >> with respect to harriet miers, the conservative opposition to her nomination to the supreme court came out pretty early and they made a strong case that she was less qualified and others and we got samuel alito who has served with distinction since he was placed on the high court. with respect to chuck hagel what is interesting to me is to see what democrats come out and oppose his nomination. he had a miserable appearance. it was a disaster when he testified last week. you heard that from people who were paid to defend the administration like robert gibbs said he was unprepared and unimpressive. martha: where does it go from here? do it look like lit pass to you or is there any sort of -- you mention robert gibbs groundswell for reconsideration. >> we have a senator from nebraska say he intends to support the nomination. and of course hagel served from nebraska. what will

've changed their mind. now sequestration, we might do it. >> i love when they bring this up during the hagel hearing and they talk about sequestration, and they go the witness and talking about what a disaster sequestration would be for the defense budget. if you just arrived from another country or mars you would be like who are the monsters who came up with the sequestration idea? who could have possibly voted for this thing? it is the people sitting that crafted it. >> the ironies speak like a birthday cake. unfortunately, we have to leave it there. we are out of time. >> can we kick the can? >> we are going to kick the can down the road. do not forget to catch chris and paul krugman this weekend.
